Pool Eye In-Ground Alarm System

Do you want two levels of protection at an affordable price? Combining a motion detector and underwater wave sensor, this innovative pool alarm system provides double safety and peace of mind. The initial line of defense comes from an infrared motion detector that features a 180-degree/100-foot range. When an object comes near the pool an alarm sounds both at the pool and at the in-house receiver. A patented underwater wave detector that signals when an object weighing 15 lb.or more falls into the pool enforces the second line against accidents. This system has two alarms-- one at the pool and one at a remote receiver. The alarm at the pool can either be set to "chirp" or to wail at 120-decibels while the remote receiver, which may be placed up to 100-feet away from the pool, alerts you with a voice announcement or a 100-decibel siren. Loaded with numerous safety features, including power battery, RF checks, and timed resets, this high-tech, water-resistant system comes with ladder and deck mounting hardware, installation and instruction manual, and a remote receiver A/C adapter. It's easy to install and comes with a 6-month warranty. (ETL/CETL/CE/FCC listed) Price is approximately $170.

Deluxe Above-Ground Pool Alarm with Remote Receiver

This alarm, designed for aboveground pools, offers reliable protection at an affordable price. Featuring a patented underwater wave detector, this easy to install and operate system instantly projects a loud 120-decibel alarm when an object weighing 15 lb. or more enters the water. The system's sensor is mounted inside the pool next to the wall while the control panel, which contains the siren, is installed on top of the pool. The control panel has an on/off switch, low battery alert, and a power check button. The system includes mounting hardware, a remote receiver that can accept a signal up to 100-feet away, and instructions. Coverage is for a round pool up to 24-feet or a 16 x 32-foot oval. A 1-year warranty is included. Price is approximately $130.

Safety Turtle Alarm System

The Safety Turtle Alarm System, which includes a base and one wristband, monitors your child and not your pool! This reliable, wireless safety system is one of the easiest to use. Consisting of an electric wristband that securely locks on your child's wrist, this device requires no poolside installation and may be easily transferred to another pool, to a boat, or to a lakeside cottage. The instant the wristband hits the water, it transmits a signal activating the remote 110V base unit. The result is a piercing alarm that alerts you to the danger. Unlike other pool systems the Safety Turtle is not prone to false alarms and it does not need to be turned off when the pool is being cleaned or in use. As long as it is on your child the wristband is on. The remote base unit may be located up to 100-feet from the wristband's area of use. Multiple wristbands may be ordered and used simultaneously. A family with 3 children would spend about $300 for this alarm system. The base comes with a 1-year warranty while the wristbands have a 6-month warranty.
